Cambridge, UK, 08 December 2020 : Today Abcam (AIM:ABC; NASDAQ:ABCM), a global innovator in life science reagents and tools, announced the opening of a new 16,000 sq ft purpose-fitted facility in Fremont, CA, which will serve as a major new site for its specialist cell engineering team. This state-of-the-art facility will enable delivery of engineered cell lines to power expansion of the ready-to-use portfolio and facilitate delivery of customization to meet the demanding needs of research, diagnostic and therapeutic development.
The move follows Abcam’s acquisition of the team and its highly adaptable CRISPR-Cas9-based gene editing platform from Applied Stem Cell earlier this year. The new facility has received significant investment from the business and features an extensive suite of tissue culture labs and is a pivotal part of Abcam’s ambitious growth plans to expand and cement its position in the edited cell line market.
This enhanced capability builds upon Abcam’s previous acquisition of an extensive range of knockout cell lines from Edigene last year. Ready-made KO cell lines play a significant role in the study and understanding of biological pathways and disease models. Abcam’s gene-edited cell line portfolio and engineering capability is also supporting the company’s award-winning knockout validation initiative, an integral part of the organization’s ongoing efforts to raise reagent quality standards across the industry.
